The Kanye West Dig Ray J has done shows all around the world, so we’re sure Brandy’s little bro knows his geography. “I had her head goin’ north and her ass goin south, but now baby chose to go west,” he sings, while the screen flashes highway signs of Oakland, Los Angeles and Chicago. Oakland is situated in Northern California, with L.A. well to the south, but last time we checked, Chicago was well east of Los Angeles, where Ray J resides. But if the singer was actually looking to take a shot at Kanye, then we must say: Mission accomplished.
In case you had forgotten that Ray J and Kim Kardashian have had sex, Ray J is releasing a new single to iTunes next week titled “I Hit it First.” It’s a not-so-sly shot at Kanye West, who is expecting a baby girl with Kardashian later this year. Ray J really wants you to remember that he once had sex with Kim Kardashian, even before Kanye West. Applaud this man! Of course, the sad irony for Ray J is that the sex tape only launched one career. Kardashian has gone on to build a powerhouse brand last year Forbes ranked her at No. 7 on their “Celebrity 100” list.
He’s always trying to show his face when he’s with Whitney. Why now? Why you trying to hide, Ray J?” she asked.

The musician’s lawyer has urged media outlets “not to republish these defamatory stories” and warned of legal action should they proceed to do so without verifying the truth.
Ray J Loses It After Cops Jeer At Whitney Houston Corpse
During an unannounced appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon http://www.rayj-sextape.com in September (13), West played his new single Bound 2 with music veteran Charlie Wilson, and he used his stage time to take a subtle jab at Ray J at the top of the song. The rapper stopped short of mentioning the singer by name – instead, he namechecked Ray J’s only sibling, R&B star Brandy, to make it clear to fans who he was referring to. He rapped, “Brandy’s little sister lame, man, he know it now/When a real brother hold you down, you supposed to drown.” But Ray J, who famously featured in a 2003 sex tape with Kardashian, insists he took the jibe in his stride, confessing, “At the end of the day it was well deserved. With the song I Hit it First… I didn’t want to dig into the song; I felt the song spoke for itself. Anything that happened after that was well deserved.
Since 2007, Ray J has starred in two VH1 shows, one dedicated to his finding love (For The Love of Ray J) and the other about life with his more-famous sister (BrandyandRay J: A Family Business). He’s dated everyone from video vixens nicknamed “Super Head” (KarrineSteffans) toWhitney Houston, a relationship that caused infighting in both his own family and hers prior to her death (after which, Ray J was supposedly inconsolable). He also got into a fight with a rapper over a joke made on Twitter (see: his scuffle with Fabulous inLasVegas) and then called into”The Breakfast Club” to deliver one of the most hilarious, incredible, incoherent moments of live braggadocio in recent radio history. He even made a scene of laughing at Kim on Twitter after she asserted that she “wouldn’t be defined by [her] past.” But for all of Ray J’s antics, his rise to fame hasn’t been as swift or as high as his ex-girlfriend’s. “Many, many times people have their anger come out sideways when theyre not directly dealing with the thing theyre really angry about.” “One of the things thats very difficult for people is to watch their ex move on to someone more successful than they are. That goes for anyone,” Elliott explained.
Ray J’s reliance on words like “hit,” “hop,” and “boppers,” as well as his claim that he can do it all without “even put[ting] in work” makes the Bop It thesis incredibly persuasive. Given the tactile nature of Bop It, in which one must “pull” and “twist” and “squeeze” and “bop” it, confusing Ray J’s lyrics for a song about sex is understandable but ultimately misinformed. Ray J’s repetition of “I hit it” at the end of the verse is a further shout out to Bop It and his mastery of it. He is proud of his Bop It skills and is challenging any and all listeners to challenge his prowess. “I had her head going north and her ass going south/ But now baby chose to go West/ We deep in the building she know that I kill ’em/ I know that I hit it best.” Many of those in the I-Hit-It-First-Is-A-Kanye-West-Diss-Track Camp point to these lyrics in particular to argue that Ray J is referencing Kim Kardashian’s decision to leave him and go “(Kanye) West.” What these critics are overlooking, however, are the general themes of travel and abandonment that mark Ray J’s ballad, and that completely transcend any current event or person. Rather, Ray J is reflecting on the earliest stages of American westward expansion.
Rapper Fabolous and singer Ray J reportedly got into it backstage at the Palms just before Fab was set to hit the stage. According to website Bossip , Ray J set things off when he punched the Brooklyn rapper in the face following a joke Fab made about the singer over social network Twitter. Nah but Floyd saying we havin a concert in my living room & the camera cuts to Ray J singing One Wish on the piano had me in tears!! Fabolous tweeted on Sept. 17th, allegedly the center of Ray Js beef. Get it..? Ray J concert in the living room!!
Sergeant Brian Weir was at the scene of Houston’s death and heard one of his co-workers, Det Sgt Nutall allegedly make some rather untoward comments regarding the star’s naked cadaver. It Is Not Known Why Ray Hasn’t Come Forward To Back-Up The Claims. “Nutall, for no legitimate [reason] knelt beside and leaned over the decedent [and] removed the sheet and/or other covering from the body of the decedent to an area below the pubic region of the decedent’s body,” says Weir’s complaint, filed in Los Angeles on the 11 September. Weir also claims that he heard Nutall remark; “Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?” whilst he peered unnecessarily at her body. Representatives from the county police have denied that there was any misconduct at the scene of Whitney’s death, and have also refuted the widely reported news that Weir had suffered any retaliatory harassment or had been punished for his claims.
